District 2 – Keuka Lake, State Park, 7/21/24
Location – Keuka Lake
Launch Site – State Park Launch
Date – Sunday, July 21st
Time – 5:30 am – 2:00 pm, (if we can launch earlier we will try)
Registration – 4:30 am – 5:15 am
The parking fee is $7 per vehicle (either car or truck with boat) and must be paid when leaving the park.

Payout: (based on xx)
Anglers
1st place – $TBD
2nd place – $TBD

Co-Anglers
1st place – $TBD
2nd place – $TBD

Do not launch your boat until you have checked in, completed the boat check and met up with your rider.
This will be a 5 fish tournament, 12″ minimum.
No culling of dead fish. Dead fish MUST be taken with you.
Lunker Fee is $10 per day. Lunker must be a live fish.
All NY Boating and Fishing rules and regulation must be adhered to at all times.
All PA Bass tournament rules apply.
It is suggested that the cost of the gas/oil used during the day be shared between the boater and the rider.
The area right at the launch will be off limits. Any areas posted no boats or no fishing means you cannot cast into those areas either.

Keuka speed limit is 45 mph, and is enforced by radar. If ticketed, you could be disqualified.

Note about weigh-in. Please tie up to the dock if there is an open slip, pull up on the shoreline, or wait out on the water. If you want to pull your boat out, you can trailer it but fish care should be considered. The co-angler should come up to the trailer to get in the bag line. Please remember to use social distancing. Get both bags (CANNOT use your own). When you get your bag, you can get your fish and bring them back for weigh in. When you come up to the scale with your fish, turn in your boat number, give me your name, verify weight and get your yellow copy of the weigh in slip. Return fish to water near the end of the slips, not at the ramp and return bags to the end of the line where you got them.

Last boat will call out numbers and each boat will launch every 10 seconds.

The tournament committee (District Officers present) will make the decision to hold a fog delay if necessary for safety. If so, the committee will make decisions regarding take off time, extending fishing hours, etc.

SAFETY – Life jackets MUST be worn when the outboard motor is running. This includes coming in to beach the boat, taking the boat on and off the trailer. If you are on the boat, the outboard is running, life jacket MUST be on for all aboard. Failure to do so can result in disqualification in the tournament.

**Any culling system utilized must reduce fish handling stress and injury (e.g., clips and color coding). Devices that use or require punching / piercing a hole in the fish’s mouth are NOT permitted. Fish should not be lifted from a livewell by culling tubes, ropes, etc., in an attempt to reduce stress.

No culling of dead fish. Dead fish MUST be taken with you.
Lunker Fee is $10 per day. Lunker must be a live fish.
All NY Boating and Fishing rules and regulation must be adhered to at all times.
All PA Bass tournament rules apply.

The Regional event will be under the Angler / Co-Angler format (same as all other State and District tournaments) so the Angler will operate the boat and choose fishing locations.

It is suggested that the cost of the gas/oil used during the day be shared between the boater and the rider.

The area around the launch will be off limits. Any areas posted no boats means you cannot cast into those areas either.

Keuka speed limit is 45 mph and is enforced by radar. If ticketed, you could be disqualified.

Remember NO POWER LOADING at the ramp.

Note about weigh-in.  Please tie up to the dock if there is an open slip, pull up on the shoreline, or trailer your boat.  If you want to pull your boat out, fish care should be considered.  The co-angler should come up to the trailer to get in the bag line.  Get both bags (CANNOT use your own). When you get your bag, you can get your fish and bring them back for weigh in.  When you come up to the scale with your fish, tell me your boat number and your name, verify weight and get your yellow copy of the weigh in slip.  Return fish to water near the end of the slips, not at the ramp and return bags to the end of the line where you got them.

Last boat will call out numbers and each boat will launch every 10 seconds.

I do have another club that is looking for a boater to complete their team.  If anyone is not fishing the tournament and is able to help out at weigh in or is up fun fishing on Friday or Saturday and have room for me on their boat, let me know.  If you are interested in fishing the District 2 tournament on Sunday, let me know.
Thanks.
